Share your discoveries directly to the map and make it more useful for everyone!

Local Guide is a person who is regularly using Google Maps and helps to improve the service by adding new, and editing existing information. Everyone has the same chances, there are no responsibilities and there is no competition. You can act as you wantwhen you want and where you want. It is also a great chance to promote local stores that were unknown so far or that could not be found by visitors due to its isolated location.

You want to be part of the Google community? Google Map’s Local Guide campaign is targeting people who love taking photos and commenting on places they visit all over the world. Therefore they receive exclusive gifts like the 1 TB Google storage!2 The only thing one needs is a smartphone with Google Maps! Is that you? Welcome on board!

Here are the 5 STEPS how to gain points for your 1 TB Google Storage:  

STEP 1: Share Reviews.

You know a top restaurant or a beautiful park? Share your experiences and help others choosing a destination.

All of us are visiting one or another place and make their experiences. Why shouldn’t you share those experiences with other people using Google Maps? Tell them if something was outstanding at the restaurant you visited, or if it was just a waste of time. Other people will benefit from your reviews and so will you!

STEP 2: Upload Photos.

A picture says more than a thousand words. Record your experiences and observe the raising number of clicks.

Since we take pictures of our daily life anyway, just share it with the world! A picture can influence lots of decision makings! So it’s quite simple to upload a photo from a place you have visited. Once again: yourself and other people will benefit from these contributions.

STEP 3: Add New Places.

There is a place missing in Google Maps? Simply add that location so that others can experience it too.

You haven’t found a place on Google Maps you wanted to visit and you had to undertake a bunch of effort to find that place? That’s dumb, isn’t it? Help others to find that place immediately on Google Maps by just adding that missing location. Just a small side note: all those other places shown on Google Maps you benefit from every day have been added by others, too!

STEP 4: Edit Places.

There are wrong opening hours or a missing telephone number? Update or add information easily.

Being in a hurry and quickly want to check the opening hours at the store you are going to visit? Uhm, there are no opening hours. Do yourself and others a favor and edit locations where something is missing or even wrong. The next time you and other users will benefit!

STEP 5: Answer Questions.

Share your experience with others and quickly respond on questions on visited locations.

If you have activated “locations” on your mobile device, Google Maps is able to recognize which location you have visited last. You will automatically get a short questionnaire about that location which will last only up to a few seconds.

Click here and see how this step works.
